Description: Tsunami is a modern Asian cuisine and sushi restaurant with a full bar where providing an exceptional dining experience is our priority. The freshest ingredients ensure exquisite meals from the fun, creative atmosphere of our sushi bar to the intimate tabletop dining in our exotic interiors. Tsunami also offers Japanese tempura, pot stickers, tataki, hibachi and other Asian dishes. We slice our fish to order and create artful presentations to please both the eye and palate. Whether on a date or with a group of friends Tsunami is the perfect place for a night out. Come experience Tsunami, a new approach to hip, sophisticated Asian cuisine.

The sushi here is pretty good, but the best deal comes with the all-you-can eat and happy hour sushi deals. The happy hour sushi (which runs from 4:30-7:00pm I believe) is 3 rolls of sushi for $9. They also offer an all you can eat sushi for $15 which is good if you are really hungry. The only drawback with the restaurant is that service is typically extremely slow. However, the ambience in the restaurant is great and the sushi is good, which keeps us coming back. The location is not bad either and is a short walk from many attractions/bars.

Nine of us stopped here for an early dinner on Friday evening. Service was very good, Nadya knew the menu and was very helpful in finding things that for our group restrictions which included gluten-free, vegetarian, peanut-allergy and "boring".

The sushi looked and tasted good. The one who had a steak said it was very tender and had good flavor.

Would eat here again if we were in the area.

Our appetizer of edamame didn't come out until our food was served, first off. It was over cooked and dry. The sushi I ordered was extremely sticky and overdone, as was my fiancée's shrimp entree. We were genuinely grossed out after eating half our food. The service was alright, besides getting two glasses with chips in them. The only bonus was the 50% off our bill, which we thought was due to the poor food. Turns out they were already running a special when we saw the sign by the front as we were exiting. Severely disappointed.

Have heard a lot of great things about this place so instead of our faithful Japanese spot we tried here. Madison our waitress was extremely nice and helpful with deciding on what to select from the menu. They had drink specials that night $3 vodkas bourbon and Stella. We ordered several apps to share. Chicken teriyaki shrimp tempura a GMC roll and shrimp spring rolls. Eh. The only thing that came out fresh was the chicken and the sushi roll seemed old. To finish it off we ordered a small sake.... extremely small. Only 3 shots could come from it. Not used to that at our normal spot. Like I said Madison was genuine attentive and patient on this busy night. The drink specials are worth the return trip.

Stopped by for a drink on the way to dinner. Drink specials not the same as advertised on line. Wife ordered a Cosmo (not on special) and it arrived in a PLASTIC martini glass. Just wasn't prepared for that. Bartender seem pained to serve us and doesn't know how to smile. Bar wasn't busy, he's just unhappy I guess.
